Usage notesEdit

The name of the dwarf planet Pluto is originally masculine inanimate, but can be used also in neuter gender. In this particular case the choice of the gender does not influence the declension of the name itself, but it influences the declension of accompanying determiners and adjectives or conjugation of verbs in the sentence – see for example the sentence in masculine gender "Pluto byl objeven" or in neuter gender "Pluto bylo objeveno" (Pluto was discovered).
